There is at present a strong interest for the interdisciplinary field of combining physics and biology. Physics can be regarded as giving a general, fundamental basis of natural science, and in that respect, it is important for providing a deep understanding of many biological processes. The purpose of the book is to give a survey of the physics that is relevant for biological applications, and also to discuss what kind of biology needs physics.
The book gives a broad account of basic physics, then considers general questions of common interest such as reductionism, determinism and randomness, where the physics view often is misunderstood.
